Perth Radiological Clinic Indigenous Scholarship
The Perth Radiological Clinic Indigenous Scholarship has been developed by PRC in conjunction with Curtin University to encourage and support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students who have chosen to study a Bachelor of Science (Medical Radiation Science) at Curtin University. We are also proud to offer all scholarship recipients employment opportunities at PRC if they would like to work at one of our clinics during or after their studies
To help students to reach their full potential in the medical imaging field, PRC will provide financial support and the scholarship recipient will receive a yearly payment of $5,000 for up to four years towards education expenses. The successful applicant will also be offered the opportunity to undertake a paid medical imaging assistant role during their studies to gain hands on experience, and access to supportive mentors to achieve job readiness.
The National Agreement on Closing the Gap lists 19 national socio-economic targets that aims to improve life outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with respect to health and wellbeing, education, employment, justice, safety, housing, land and waters, and languages.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people enjoying long, healthy lives and closing the gap in life expectancy within a generation by 2031
Increasing the proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 25-34 who have completed a tertiary qualification (Certificate III and above) to 70% by 2031
Increase the proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth in employment of training to 67% by 2031
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make up 3.8% of the West Australian population, and yet have the greatest health needs of any group within WA. PRC recognises that we have an active responsibility to undertake meaningful action to “close the gap,” and are committed to contributing towards achieving equality in life outcomes overall.
PRC aims to make a difference through improving access to culturally appropriate medical imaging services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and growing our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce to achieve long-term community benefits.
